Assassin drama Killing Eve dominated this year’s BAFTA TV Awards, picking up the coveted Best Drama Series gong. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s gripping series won three out of a possible six gongs, with Jodie Comer, who played Villanelle, crowned Best Actress.

A tearful Comer fought off competition from Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard), Ruth Wilson (Mrs Wilson) and her co-star Sandra Oh. On collecting the gong she said: “Wow thank you so much BAFTA. I’m the only one who has turned on the water works. I want to thank Stephen Graham. If I didn’t owe you a pint before, I do now.” The broadcaster tweeted a gif of Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining throwing pots and pans on the floor alongside the caption: “We lost. In fact, we lost twice in the same category. But I’m taking it really well.” Graham Norton returned to host the proceedings, and took a swipe at Danny Baker’s recent firing from BBC Radio 5 Live.
